Saturday Shop News

What an exciting week it has been for new arrivals for the shop.  As promised, the rest of our Vintage Happy collection arrived, isn't it just scrumptious!!  There is the most amazing Union Jack quilt in this months Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine designed by Lynn Goldsworthy using some of these fabrics which is just stunning!

When the next box of fabrics arrived I'm sure you all heard the squeal.....gorgeous gorgeous fabrics from the Pam Kitty Picnic collection.  I just love them all, but I'm really drawn to the red text print... I'm already plotting how to incorporate this in to some quilty makes for my kitchen..watch this space.

As you know, I can not resist a sweet ditsy floral, so to combine one with mini stripes...does it get any better I ask...oh yes...indeedy when you get to choose from three colour combinations.  Sevenberry have come up tops again with this one design, I've already added to my ever growing to do list, a pretty summery top for Poppy in one of these...the question is which colour do I use.....
 ..... and of course with their lovely dots and stripes....yet more colours are now available.  I've never really used black a great deal in my sewing, but I am very taken with how stunning they look as a quilt binding..... Rita over at Red Pepper Quilts does this to perfection.

It's been another amazingly busy week for orders this week, thank you however as a result, I'm so sorry I haven't got the patchwork bag tote tutorial published, but I will do my very best this week.  I'm also dreadfully behind with my blog reading, but trying to catch up on an evening before I fall asleep.  To make life a little easier I finally treated myself to a mini Ipad...... oh my goodness, what have I been missing out on.  I've now joined Instagram....you can find me on there HERE...if you're on there, please do pop by and say hello.

Well that's it for this week... back soon!
